39-year-old “The Don” rapper Nas broke bread last night with a couple of the most powerful men in the tech game–28-year-old billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg (with his wife Priscilla) and 46-year-old hi-tech entrepreneur/billionaire venture capitalist Ben Horowitz.
Pics surfaced on Instagram from a private dinner that took place last night with the interesting trio. Details of their convo have yet to be released, but we do conclude it has something to do with Nas’ involvement in Facebook, which Mark owns and Ben has invested in via his firm Andreessen Horowitz.
Another random fact we’ve noticed, Ben has often referenced on his Twitter account his recent investment in the hip hoplyric decoder site Rap Genius. He posted an article about how the sensemaking of internet information–i.e. rap lyrics(like the Rap Genius site)–is one of his firm’s investment focuses. Interestingly, Ben posted a pic with Nas at a Rap Genius function last July. So the two are not total strangers.
